Please report incidents and suspicious vehicles / persons directly to your security service provider so that they can take prompt action. Please note that WhatsApp is not a formal means of dispatching a security service provider or SAPS. Please respect this protocol and don’t place the lives of community citizens in danger by expecting them to respond. The KSS 24/7 Control Room contact number is 033 330 5911.
Numerous crimes these days involve the use of vehicles, and this is where the neutral community safety project by the UCSI NPC is going to be so valuable. Once the network of ANPR SNIPR camera mounted gantries have been installed in our municipal area (26 of them planned for phase 1) the UCSI NPC is going to be able to monitor and effectively disseminate intelligent information to Law Enforcement agencies.
UCSI NPC (uMngeni Community Safety Initiative)
The primary objective of the UCSI NPC is to set up Automatic Number Plate Recognition SNIPR cameras at the access and agrees locations to our uMngeni Municipal areas. It is a Not-for-profit Company and totally independent and neutral in the community. The UCSI NPC is not a Security Company – and is an intelligence information disseminating organisation.
KSS now has close to 180 clients affiliated to the UCSI. For as little as R30per month please contribute to the holistic Community Safety Initiative. It is all about keeping our whole uMngeni Community safer and monitoring vehicles moving and out of our areas. Please go to www.ucsi.org.za to find out more about how to contribute and see how business entities and the likes can affiliate as well.
